Personal Notes:
Grama would make this soup for us the minute she knew we were sick in bed. It was so soothing and tasty and settled nicely in a sick tummy.
Brown egg shells are harder and so less likely to crack and introduce bacteria into the egg itself,
Cage –free eggs are less likely to harbor salmonella or other bacteria because the chickens are healthier as they are not confined to an area where feces and eggs are dropped together.
Buying cage-free eggs is also a way to encourage more humane treatment of farm animals.
